Barn Glow - Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

One of the most photographed barns in the world, the Thomas Moulton Barn, probably has seen more visitors before and during sunrise than any other. The visitors are almost always photographers. Located on Morman Row, the barn waits quietly in the dark as photographers create a semicircle around the front of the barn. The photographers lay in wait and hope that there are no clouds blocking the sun as it rises from the east. They are also hoping that clouds are not hiding the wondrous peaks of the Teton Range behind the barn. As the su begins to rise, the area becomes a bit brighter until it clears the mountains in the east. That is when the barn door begins to glow a beautiful orange color. Once it does, all you hear are the clicking of cameras for a few minutes before the glow fades. Once it does, the photographers move on and the barn sits there waiting for the next sunrise.
